Sorry Trip but you are wrong. Best friends have to be unique for immortals from the rules:

6. Have 6 different Best Friends (must be different Best Friends of other immortals)

So if Sim A counts Mortimer Goth as a besty then Morty is off the table for Sim B to even be best friends with. Even if you are not claiming him a best friend for Sim B.

Pam's explanation of the BF requirement is correct. It's different with the Life States Dynasty where there is no "claiming" and BF must be totally unique to heirs.

This is the explanation of Best Friends for Ambrosia that I had used (and, I believe, Trip had as well).

Would it be possible to have you (or any moderator) edit the rules to clarify that the BF must be unique?

To my knowledge, we have always interpreted the rule to mean the best friends can overlap, as long as they are claimed by only one Immortal Sim.  For example, Christopher Steel could be best friends with both Carina and Nectarine (wife and daughter).  However, only Carina claimed him as part of her requirements.

I found this, hope this helps everyone.  Listen to Pam.

I have lost count the amount of times this issue has come up.  I have always thought that best friends should be unique as in nobody can share a besty but if Pam has stated that this is not so then everyone should go by what the boss lady says.

In which case, we should modify the wording to reflect that: "If two immortals share a best friend, only one immortal may count them as a best friend" -- if the boss man agrees. ;)

Indeed, if it will cause less confusion, let's edit the rules to be more specific.  I stand by my interpretation as quoted by Nutella from September 12, 2013.  :)

I have edited the rule set.
The rule now reads:
6. Have 6 different Best Friends (must be different Best Friends of other immortals if two immortals share a best friend then only one of them can claim that particular best friend as an ambrosia requirement.)

Does that make sense to everyone?

Before I go ahead and do something silly with my black ops for my founder, I have a nagging thought in my mind that the 'free vacation for adults when sims are teens' op is not allowed for the founder nor any ya/adult/elder. Is that correct?

The free vacation opp is allowed, only after your 2nd generation becomes YA.

Be careful with the Free Vacation. Some parents never make it back home.

I never do the free vacation opp for that very reason KRae. Not worth the risk,the annoying thing is that is the one opp that pops the most often.

You can sell the cameras of sims you move in, yes. The line in the rules about selling your founder's camera before you set the family funds or not selling it ever apply only to your founder.

Better safe than sorry, so I'll ask this. Ruleset says:
Quote
Opportunities that come in a string — i.e. the Omni Plant chain — all qualify as separate opportunities with different titles.
I wonder if the same applies to Art Training opportunities. There are four ops in the string, each one has unique name (Advanced Art Training - Skilled Painting - Brilliance - Masterpiece), but as soon as one opportunity is completed, next one pops up without any input required from the player. It's more like 'Free Genie' than 'Omni Plant' opp.chain in that relation. So, does it matter if opportunities pop up immediately one after another, or it's okay as long as their names are different?

@Siergiej

You are okay to count them as four separate ops.  As long as the names are all different, it does not matter if it pops up immediately one after another.

Sorry if this has been asked before, but with the super amount of pages and the searchbar I still didn't find the question.

As far as photographs are concerned - Does things like 'Sim Dancing' or 'Sim Cooking' work as well? Or does it have to be very specifically something related to the Sim?

Those subjects are fine, because it's the sim in question that is the subject (in those cases, cooking or dancing).

As a follow-up on that: I have a photo with the subject 'Child being carried'. Is that acceptible for the Sim doing the carrying, or only for the child?

I'm going to say its only for the child, not acceptable for the sim doing the carrying.  Trip what do you think?
